_______________________________________ ______________

Finding a consistent groove has been a season-long struggle for the D-Train. Willis lost
his second straight decision, and he now has one win in his last 12 decisions. The 25-year-old
lost to the Braves in his last outing, giving up six runs, including three homers, in 5 1/3
innings. On the season, he is 1-1 against the Nationals. Willis beat Washington on Opening
Day, giving up two runs (one earned) in six innings. But on July 13, he suffered a loss to
Washington. In that contest, he gave up eight runs, with three earned.

The stats show that Hill gave up seven runs (six earned) in 5 1/3 innings against the Dodgers.
It wasn't Hill's day, to say the least, as he had problems with his sinker. Of the first eight
batters Hill faced, seven of them managed to put the ball in the air. The biggest blow of the
game came in the second inning, when Russell Martin hit a two-run homer to cut the Nationals'
lead to 4-2.
